I hate when people tell you how you feel instead of asking you how you feel. It's like they so badly want to have you feel one way that it's inconceivable that you could possibly feel differently.
I'm an easy going, laid back person. And I don't get mad or annoyed about too many things. But if you tell me how I feel and what I think instead of acknowledging the fact that I have my own opinions and emotions, it drives me crazy.

Being in a relationship is hard enough on it's own without having your partner take you for granted. If you're in a relationship where you're not number one, get out. If it's bad now, it's only going to get worse and you're only going to get hurt.
If you settle, it's your own fault. And if you let your partner get away with treating you like that it'll create a pattern and you know what they say, 'A leopard can't change it's spots.'
I know we like to think that people can change, and that we can be the ones to change them, but in most situations that's not the case.
Now, if whoever you're with isn't making you number one, then turn around and walk away and make yourself number one. That person doesn't deserve you and you can do much better. There are six billion people in this world, it's going to take a few tries and a few broken hearts to find the 'one' so don't give up and don't settle for anything less than what you deserve.

It's a terribly horrifying thing. Whether you're in it, around it, or even thinking about it.
Love can make you crazy, it can make you stupid, jealous, insecure. Love can make you or break you. It can damn near ruin your life if you let it. For something to have that much power, of course it's going to be scary. How can anyone blame you for wanting to go running and screaming in the opposite direction?
What if the person you love doesn't love you back? Or doesn't know you even exist? Or worse, what if they love someone else? Oh, the number of things that could go wrong are countless. It could be a total catastrophe. Complete and utter humiliation may ensue. The world could quite possibly end, or so it may seem at times.
And just finding someone to love is enough trouble in itself. People are crazy, selfish, inconsiderate, foolish... I mean really, at this point is it even worth it anymore? Is putting yourself on the line for a mere possibility worth the risk?
Of course it is. When you do find someone who is worth all of the trouble, all of the things that could go wrong, the embarrassment, the humiliation... hearing them say 'I love you' is invaluable.

In the last week, several people have told me I'd be a good catch... if I'd let someone catch me.
I hate the way that sounds. I'm not a fish. And is it so bad not to want to be caught? I'm having plenty of fun doing my own thing, doing things for myself, not having to worry about someone else's feelings.
Now, I'm not against finding someone. I'm just not going to settle. I don't want to be with someone who doesn't give me butterflies every time I think about them. I refuse to be with someone who doesn't make me see fireworks just from a kiss. I've settled before and all that did was get someone hurt.
I just want someone who is smart, funny, and someone I can talk to (who will understand the things I say). I don't want to have to explain everything, and I don't want to have to be like a mother to the person I'm seeing. I'm not saying I'm a genius, I just want someone who can keep up with me. And I don't play the jealousy game. Or any games for that matter. As far as I'm concerned, if you want me to be jealous over someone else, then go and be with that someone else.
Also, I refuse to be with someone that I can break. That sounds awful, and it is. But if you're not going to be even slightly challenging, and you can't keep my attention, why should I bother?
If you know what you want, go for it. Don't just settle for what's around.

If you're going to claim to be over something, then get over it. Stop talking about it. Stop bringing attention to it. Stop making a big deal about it. Just stop. If you keep going back to the same thing over and over again, and keep trying to prove to people that you are-in fact-over it, chances are you're not over it. Listening to the same story on an endless loop is exhausting. Every time we talk I feel like I'm stuck in a more dramatic, and not at all comical, version of Groundhog day. I can only say the same thing so many times, and unfortunately I'm not as much of a fan of your voice as you are.
I'm sick and tired of having to listen to 'Whoa is me' stories from people who feed on attention. It's disgusting. And I am not the person to cry to. I don't care for the dramatics, and I don't respond well to people who are needy. Maybe it's just me. Maybe because I don't spread my business around town I find it hard to understand why anyone else would. Maybe because I don't like too much attention myself, I cant imagine why other people would want to make things up to get extra attention put on themselves. Maybe because I'm normal, I can't understand why other people aren't.
I'm just kidding about that last part. But seriously. I'll never understand why people make up sob stories for attention. What's the point? It's too much work to lie. You have to remember too many things. And if you get caught you get in trouble. It's just not worth it.
Anyway, the point of this entire rant was that I'm done being friends with certain people. And by certain people, I mean you.

I have decided to take care of myself.
To tend to my needs. To solve my problems. To deal with my issues.
I'm exhausted. Exhausted from listing to people complain about the most insignificant bullshit. I'm tired of dealing with people who are so selfish that even when you're screaming at the top of your lungs, they don't hear you. Tired of people making everything about themselves, even when they know you're suffering.
I'm over people comparing their problems to mine when they have no idea what I'm going through-or what anyone else is going through for that matter. I'm done listening to people that try to convince me that their current drama is more important than anything that could possibly be bothering me. I'm not going to fully be there for people who aren't even partially there for me.
I'm just done.
With that being said, I've decided to be happy. I'm not really a fan of feeling sad and it's not really working for me. I miss being myself and feeling good. Shedding the negativity, and unnecessary negative people around me, will help me find my way back to myself. I'm not sure where or when I got lost, but it's about time I'm found. Of course this wont happen over night, but from now on I'm going to do whatever I have to do to just be me.
From now on I'm going to live my life and I'm going to love my life. With all of the bumps and potholes that come along with it, I'm going to love it. With all of the obstacles and roadblocks that come along with it, I'm going to love it. With all of the ups and downs, the good the bad... I'm going to love it.
All of it.
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "
